Top 30 Under 30

During the winter of 2011 Winnipeg Arcades Project was selected by The Uniter - 'University of Winnipeg's weekly urban journal' - as one of its Top 30 Manitobans Under 30. We were honoured by the selection and would like to extend our thanks to Nicholas Friesen and The Uniter.

Photos from WAP No.2/2011

WAP No.2/2011 achieved 0.2% of the attendance attracted by our primary rival Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Given our budgetary constraints and a mere week's exhibition time (not to mention the City of Winnipeg barricading the exhibition's entrance) the show was a great success. WAP No.2/2011 has disappeared as quickly as it entered the world, but if you didn't catch it, breath easy, it's safely in the vault awaiting the day we open the permanent Winnipeg Arcades Project museum of local culture.

Museum-goers were welcomed by a wall displaying the exhibition's three subjects.

Higgins and Main video.
